Meet Darlene Howard-Sprinkle: 2013 NP Semifinalist
Darlene, RN, MSN, FNP, practices at Mobile Infirmary Medical Center in Mobile, AL.
Patients Andrea M. and Sheila B. share how this nurse practitioner made a difference in their lives:
“Darlene Howard-Sprinkle is the only NP at our Employee Health Department, and treats all of her patients, us employees, with compassion. We have never seen her in a bad mood or refuse to answer a question…even if she is leaving for the day or is just coming into the office early in the morning.
Darlene follows through with all of her patients, even going to the length of picking up their medications when they are unable to leave work to do that. Darlene has been credited for saving many lives by recognizing serious symptoms and escorting those employees to the emergency room.
You just know this is her life’s calling and she really enjoys what she does. We are very lucky to have her!” —Andrea M. and Sheila B.
